About ChemSynthesis

There are tens if not hundreds of chemical structure databases around at the moment. Some of them, such as PubChem, Organoboron Database, ChemSpider, Emolecules etc., are very useful to locate compound suppliers or to find biological/physical properties. But only two databases are currently providing synthesis or synthesis references free of charge: OrgSyn and Heterocycles. These websites are very useful for organic chemists. There is only one disadvantage: the data in these databases is limited to a few journals.

Our database

We created a freely accessible database of chemicals with synthesis references that are not limited to a few journals. Along with these synthesis references our database also contains physical properties for the listed substances.

There are currently more than 40,000 compounds and more than 45,000 synthesis references in the database.

Our database will be updated periodically. A next update version is planned for autumn 2019. Up to 150,000 new structures including their physical and chemical properties and synthesis references will be available.

Our aims

Evidently, we are not able to compete with databases like Beilstein. Our main advantage, however - we will never make our service chargeable. Regardless of this fact, we will try to build as big a database as possible.

In addition, we would like to build the biggest database with physical properties available on the internet free of charge.

How you can help us?

Unfortunately as of yet, the ChemSynthesis database does not contain physical properties for all the records. You can send us this information if you have it. You can also send synonym names or/and CAS registry number. We would be very grateful if you could send us new substances with synthesis references and physical properties for them. We would prefer synthesis references for already added journals but we appreciate any new data.

Any suggestions and/or corrections are welcome. Thank you very much in advance for your efforts.
